This short story concerns an ancient, secret organization called the Table, and their quest for an artifact of awesome power. An elite but dysfunctional team -- including a methamphetamine addict who can see into the past, a murderous witch, a man who takes on the powers of any creature he devours, and the living embodiment of mankind's evil -- criss-cross the globe (and other worlds) to find a Cup older and more powerful than the Holy Grail (and even closer to God). Drugs, violence, and apocalypse abound in this miniature epic. First published in groundbreaking anthology Twenty Epics, and subsequently reprinted in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror and The Mammoth Book of Extreme Fantasy.
